James J. Andrews: [shows Fuller a letter] You don't get a letter like that from Brigadier General Beauregard just for running Quinine.
William A. Fuller: No, I reckon you don't. I'd give my right arm just to serve under that man.
James J. Andrews: *You are*! This railroad is the artery that pumps fresh blood into the army of Mississippi on the left land, and to the army of Northern Virginia on the right. Beauregard and Robert E. Lee would *perish* without men like you!
Col. Jim Bowie: How many men did you bring?
Davy Crockett: Four, including myself.
Col. Jim Bowie: Four? Two acres of walls to defend. It'll take a thousand troops to man the garrison adequately. And I got less than two hundred volunteers.
Davy Crockett: Two hundred stubborn men can do a terrible lot of fighting.
